Document.ConvertNumbersToText Method (Object)


Changes the list numbers and LISTNUM fields in the specified document to text.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.dll)

There are two types of numbers: preset numbers (F:Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdNumberType.wdNumberParagraph), which you can add to paragraphs by selecting a template in the Bullets and Numbering dialog box; and LISTNUM fields (F:Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdNumberType.wdNumberListNum), which enable you to add more than one number per paragraph.

The ConvertNumbersToText method is useful if you want to work with a document in another application and that application does not recognize list formatting or LISTNUM fields.

After you convert list numbers to text, you can no longer manipulate them in a list.
